A Brimful of Asha (Stage Play) - 2:00PM

With extended and sold out runs across the world, this critically acclaimed hit has proven an instant favorite with audiences everywhere. Real-life mother and son, Asha and Ravi Jain, share the stage and tell this true (and very Canadian) story of generational and cultural clash. When Ravi takes a trip to India his parents decide it is the perfect time to introduce him to potential brides. Ravi is not sold on the idea of getting married -at least not yet - but Asha fears that time is running out.

“Pioneering in its intimacy and yet unapologetically heartwarming, Ravi Jain’s play is a beguiling blend of old and new styles, which fits the material beautifully.”  - The New York Times (USA)

“I’m a huge theatre fan and like to think I’m pretty discerning. I loved Ravi and Asha Jain’s A Brimful of Asha. It was gutsy, it was real, and it hit the heart like a spicy samosa. You don’t have to be a single Indian guy with a mother who really wants a daughter-in-law to enjoy it, you just have to be human. My mother also loved it, though she didn’t laugh at the same parts I did, strangely.”  - Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi
